Tacos Fresh but Bland

I liked the quality and freshness of the ingredients in the steak tacos. The guac in the taco was a great call. The fresh squeezed orange juice was also delicious and it was definitely worth getting the large size! My only qualm is that I would have preferred the meat to be a little more seasoned... read more

We went here for breakfast and wow.. celiac tastebuds rejoice! I had the almond energy pancakes and they were delicious! Almost everything is gluten free or can be made gluten free. They take allergies very seriously and prepare everything accordingly. Our server put a red coaster at our table to let other servers know that someone at our table has... More

Hugo's has a huge menu that appeals to vegetarians, meat lovers, and those needing to eat gluten free. And there are a lot of options that have a signature Hugo's flair. One of my favorite items was the cardamom cucumber refresher. This is going to become one of my "go to" restaurants when I visit LA.

Dined with a friend who also has gluten restrictions and we were both pleasantly satisfied and enjoyed a wonderful meal, without the concerns of gluten cross-contamination! Substituting sides was also easy. I'd eat here again...maybe soon. =)

The weekend mornings can get very busy but it is well worth the wait. The eggs benedict is my go-to item. The poached eggs are cooked perfectly every time. The service is very friendly and attentive.

We ate here on holiday just a few days ago. The meals that we had were exquisite. I had the Indian plate on special, and my wife had the tofu pasta. We're not vegetarian, but we do enjoy a good vegetarian meal from time to time, and Hugo's selection of vegetarian options did not disappoint. We'd gladly eat here again... More

5 of us with completely different ideas on what they wanted to eat for dinner went to Hugos in Los Angeles. The menu had something for everyone including lots of vegetarian and vegan entrees. We all enjoyed our meal and the service.

Hugo's has locations both in the heart of West Hollywood and Studio City (Valley Village). I feel that the food quality and level of attentive service is consistent between both locations. The food is very tasty and can conform to ANY preference of the guest (vegan, gluten free, etc). Brunch and lunch are very popular at both of their locations.... More

There was a big variety of healthy dishes. The "green casserole" was delicious. It was fun to overhear all the "Hollywood" talk. I saw Sly Stone and James Cromwell eating there.
